It reduced the problem, slightly, though not enough to change the situation for future generations.
I tend to think that while personal adjustment (or sacrifice) feed our need for the daily dose of altruism and positive self image (hello my years of no animal product whatsoever and other undecover priorities), in a larger perspective it does very little and is quite naieve. Abused, if you will, because it serves the governments too well. As if that was all that is necessary to do. Nope. It is up to the govs to actually implement meaningful legislature and large producers to start losing business if they keep abusing the freedom of the free market. We as consumers can influence, but whether one virtue signals about our personal sacrifice or not...is irrelevant, since it actually has a very little impact. Education and critical thinking skills impact more since they put power back to the consumer's choice. Govs are also elected by consumers...so. Climate Strikes might be a way to educate us, by kids. It seems quite genuine. There. A morning spiel.
